Can you imagine the level of self-pity and isolation this child would feel if they were told by the “authorities” in their communities, households and schools this information on a regular basis?
Picture the message being blanketed in fear-based condemnation if the child even questioned “why” they were being told they are “puny” and “limited” in their thinking capacities, then being shunned for being audacious enough to question the authoritative figure.
In my observation of very young children in my everyday work, I see, in the midst of their sometimes “selfishness,” very genuine characteristics of “oneness” and togetherness they still feel and yearn for with other people.
Sure, some children are very shy and can be a bit apprehensive about opening up, but once they embrace you, you become part of their world without much continual hesitation and virtually zero judgment.
You are loved without condition.
However, as we get older, our experiences and environments change how we perceive ourselves, and we seek to “belong” thus classifying ourselves into categories, races, sects and labels.
This yearning usually stems from the underlying desire of all people to always be connected to the Divine Source of Love, but unfortunately, most people float away from this basic and absolute “need” due to programming and gravitation toward developing an “identity” that is separate from anyone else.
As children we understand the absolute “need” of Love clearly even though we’re probably unconscious of it. Therefore, when we first arrive on the planet as infants, we’re born with the understanding that no separation into “sub-cultures” is necessary because the “ego” or “self” has not been overly fed and fattened by the environment.
The Higher “Self” or our subconscious/intuitive mind is still highly attuned and communicative with the Divine.
So referring back to the initial illustration, it baffles me that society, religion, culture, and the environment in general put so much emphasis on disempowering the human “Self” with the exact same messages above.
How absurd does it seem to tell a child that they create nothing, yet expect that as an adult, you should accept that you create nothing because only God creates? Doesn’t it seem ridiculous to even suggest to a child they’re nothing, but yet suggest to a fellow human being they are powerless without God?
There seems to be a huge disconnect which stems from the “Separatist Syndrome” the conditioning we experience in this energetic realm of earth as we get older. We arrive knowing that we’re connected to God and never feel or operate outside of that connection. However, as we age and are conditioned, we forget this and start relinquishing the very capacity that distinguishes the human from any other species: the human brain.
The only “self” that can actually be considered dangerous is the “ego,” because it’s guilty of fostering the separation of our Higher “Self” from God. This is where the definition must be clear.
In conclusion, there’s no need to view your “Self” as separate from God, as this is your direct connection to Source, which ALWAYS resides inside of you. Trust not your lower “self” as letting this portion of your mind govern your life can lead to what most people would describe as “danger,” what you must be careful of.
Let’s return to our initial state of allowing your “Self” to be in constant communication with the Divine through Love.
